Rock 'n' Roll Reunion: The Rascals Perform In Westchester

Original band members set for first public performance in 40 years.

There's going to be some Good Lovin' going on at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester in December.

The original members of legendary band The Rascals are set to reunite for their first public performance in 40 years in a three-night run on Dec. 13, 14 and 15.

"More than just a comeback or reunion, the show will remind audiences how uniquely inspirational, entertaining, and historically important the Rascals' music is," said Steven Van Zandt, who is producing and directing the event which he calls a combination of a rock concert and a Broadway show.

The Rascals' original lineup of Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati, Dino Danelli, and Gene Cornish, will be performing in a combination concert ant theatrical event called "Once Upon A Dream," which in addition to Van Zandt is getting the help of lighting/projection wizard Marc Brickman.

"Their music was unique not only in its greatness, but through their hit singles they told the entire story of the sixties," said Van Zandt. "'Once Upon a Dream' will take full advantage of The Capitol Theatre's unparalleled sound and projection capabilities, with never-before-seen elements of staging and lighting design from Brickman, a premier visual artist whose resume includes Roger Waters' recent 'The Wall' tour."

The refurbished Capitol re-opened in September with a sold-out performance by American music icon Bob Dylan.

Van Zandt said the shows by The Rascals will feature a complete concert performance by the band, combined with the history of the group told through archival footage, narration, and dramatic film segments viewed on the latest LED screen technology.
